Friday night. Just getting dusk. Came in from the buoy 24 out by the channel drifiting not catching a thing. Got to Grassy threw out a drfit rig, crawler, white blade and pink beads, and ugh. thought I had a snag. Kept reeling in as though it was loaded down with weeds, then suddenly WHAM it started taking line out. Then I saw it jump and thought I had caught the devil. Here is where I need the help, it had the shape of a pike (you know fin loactaion and such) but was bigger than any I had ever seen. It's mouth was huge. It was brown in color and I measured the side of the boat that it came up on (twice it came to the side and just sat there looking at me for a few) and the best I can tell it was about 44 inches. I have nothing big enough to land a fish that big so on its second time at the boat I grabbed a large screwdriver thinking I could knock it out and get it into the boat. Fat chance, I swear it laughed at me, shook its head broke the line and swam away. Was this indeed a musky? Sure would like to have landed it to get it up on my wall. What a fish!!!!!!!
